Hi, I've been looking at changing my 2011 997.2 for a 991.2 Carrera S. Both are manual cars but the 991.2 I'm looking at doesn't have Sport Chrono. The dealer says it doesn't matter as it's a manual (what he should of said is it doesn't matter as much as with a PDK). The pricing of the car takes into account the missing Sport Chrono but the market is fairly dead at the moment from all accounts. The car is a strange spec in that it has rear wheel steer, sports exhaust etc. I've been thinking of changing my 997.2 for a while but have been really happy with it so the idea of parting with it has been difficult (tried hard to do the man maths to keep both but it isn't really a sensible option).

Thoughts? all views appreciated

I just made the move from a 997 to a 991. My 997.1 was a Turbo Cab with a manual gearbox. The new car is a 991.2 GTS Carrera 2 with a manual gearbox.

The 991.2 is better then the 997.1 in every way. My 991.2 has Sports Chrono and it makes it easier to change into Sport, Sport Plus or my individual combination.

Sports Chrono is definitely worth having.

If I owned and enjoyed a 911 (manual) without sport chrono, it wouldn't bother me one jot. But unfortunately it will probably impact resale potential. Not massively I wouldn't have thought but maybe a little.

I was in a position to consider changing my 997.2 for a 991.1 a few weeks ago. I was also tempted by the drop in prices on the 991.2.

However, I ended up deciding to keep my 997 because I couldn't justify the cost of upgrading...yet. The 997 is just too good. IMHO Razz

Prices have fallen in recent months and I think they will continue to fall given what's happening with the economy. I do think 997 prices will also fall so with current pricing it is all relative.

If you do see value in trading up I don't think there is any reason to rush but rather sit on your options until your unicorn spec appears. No need to compromise yet Wink
